Soon after 9/11, Bill Maher lost his job on mainstream television for his remark about the relative cowardice of the alleged hijackers. I have to believe that he’s been warned that any further discussion of 9/11 that does not follow the official Bush/PNAC line will mean the end of his career. It seems that Bill Maher, like so many others, has his price.’
Maher is a comedian who hosts a weekly show on HBO that includes commentary and discussion about relevant political topics. He has no qualms about broaching very controversial matters and is an equal opportunity host to people across the political spectrum who apparently may discuss any issue OTHER THAN 9/11.
Bill Maher has unequivocally labeled as fools all people who raise any questions about the official story of 9/11. He has made his own acceptance of the Bush/PNAC line the last word on the topic. Anyone who would dare to differ is an idiot. Period.
Maher’s histrionics this past Saturday night - running into the audience to personally oust a non violent, albeit somewhat disruptive 9/11 protester - was one for the record books. It seems that he will talk to anyone, no matter how extreme or controversial, from Ann Coulter on, but has zero tolerance for anyone who questions the official explanation of what caused the towers to collapse.
Maher went so far as to say that on this single topic, of all the controversial outrages of this administration… on this ONE topic, he agrees with George Bush. Those were his exact words. Strange, but I don’t recall the President ever offering an explanation of how the towers came down in an average of ten seconds. Maybe Maher had a private audience at the White House and knows something the rest of us do not. Sure.
You have to wonder why he would totally close the door to any possible discussion of the one event that made all the other horrors possible. Duh….
There were a number of scenarios he might have followed to deal with the protester. For starters, he could have offered to invite someone of repute to come on the show and present his or her case at a later date. That would have quieted the protester as well as others in the audience who were angered by Maher’s dismissal of anyone and everyone who dares to doubt the official lies offered by Bushco. His ridicule of the 9/11 Truth Movement is way out of character for someone so willing to call all the other Bush lies what they are….and you have to wonder who got to him and whose backside he’s covering.
One can only conclude that Bill Maher is either a coward, sacrificing principle to protect his job, or a 9/11 gatekeeper of the first order, working to keep any open discussion of 9/11 from ever reaching the airwaves.
This is not about what Maher believes or does not believe about 9/11. It’s about his absolute refusal to consider that there might be another side to the discussion, especially in light of all the evidence to that effect that has been unearthed by scholars and scientists. It is about his coloring members of the Truth Movement idiots and nut jobs. There has to be more to the story than what appears on the surface. It really makes no sense at all.
The attacks on 9/11 remain the single remaining taboo topic forbidden by all of the mainstream media. They alone made all the ensuing horrors possible - from the Patriot Act and NSA spying to the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. By placing a wall of silence around any discussion of 9/11 Bill Maher now has established himself as either an official gatekeeper or a coward.
Either role is despicable.
